Fixed star Capulus, M34 Persei, is a 5.5 magnitude star cluster in the sword hand of the Hero, Perseus Constellation. Morse says that the word Capulus means Handle. The cluster is just visible to the naked eye in very dark conditions, well away from city lights.

Fixed Star Capulus Astrology

Fixed star Capulus is of the nature of Mars and Mercury (high enterprise, combative, destructive.) It causes blindness or defective eyesight. [1]

Capulus, or Gyrus is a multiple star and a cluster. The second name merely describes the circular appearance but Capulus means a Handle, as they mark the sword hand of Perseus, which is why Ptolemy classed them as a Mars-Mercury item. Like most clusters, they are traditionally malefic, associated with either murder or execution. Being in Taurus, those facts are specifically related to the neck, hanging or beheading.

What seems to have been missed by the old school is that Capulus and Algol each have a very positive side to them. The sword did remove a monstrosity from our world, and the monstrosity’s head did, in its turn, rescue Andromeda – and by the same token, all of us – from yet another monster of great evil. How Capulus, and more especially Algol, signify on horoscopes depends entirely on how the person concerned does or does not live life with an honest sense of purpose to it, a desire at least to try to live up to some kind of philosophy, religion or ideal. If that be present, in the person or question or event for which the chart is drawn, then all will go well. The author has seen this happen so often, once the superstition about these stars is dropped. If purpose and intent be ‘shady’, then we don’t really need stars to tell us that things are likely, with good reason, to go wrong. [3]

Fixed star Capulus rules the back of the neck in the human body. [4]

Constellation Perseus

Perseus is like Jupiter and Saturn. It is said to give an intelligent, strong, bold and adventurous nature, but a tendency to lying. [1] The constellation is indicative of events effecting large numbers of people, especially those events caused by major meteorological phenomena. When prominent in a natal chart it is said to denote adventurous individuals, but also those who are less than honest in their dealings with others. [2]

2nd Arabic Manzil – Al-Butain

Helps the finding of treasures and retaining of captives.

With Moon: Buy and sell but avoid the sea.

17th Chinese Xiù – 胃 (Wèi) Stomach

The celestial granary. Governs the accumulation of wealth and storing, prisons, punishment, execution, sea walls, reservoirs, and canals. Good for making investments, tending to savings and banking. Everything involving earth is favored, such as digging and funerals. Children of a marriage contracted on this day will be protected by influential figures.

Moon conjunct Venus conjunct Capulus: This is a very difficult energy point as it affects the nerves in the back of the neck and up the spine to the head. This individual usually has no mobility through the vertebrae in the neck area, and there is a blockage of energy to all the nerve areas connected to the spine. As a result, all fixed star points connected to the pituitary gland are also affected. These persons will experience blackouts as the energy flow is cut off from time to time, but they do have vision most of the time. They are not in continuous darkness, especially if there are good aspects to this conjunction. As the person ages, the condition worsens and the problem is attributed to a malfunction of the eyes instead of a blockage in the nervous system. When they are very young, they do not understand what is occurring nor able to describe the problem. They do not realize the energy pattern through the nerves that block the reflective light at times. [4]

  1. I have Mars directly on Capulus ruling my natal horoscope from 12th house. It has been awful life full of ridiculi and lack of sense. Yet I have found that Gnani Yoga has explained my life ideals I have had my whole life up to this point. So… yet I had always been feeling Agnostic, it is also the star of spiritual blindness, but I have Mercury very well positioned in my natal chart and has always been interested in secret or occult.

  2. Hi Jamie, Thank you, This was from your Saturn Retrograde article and I would request a reading please. My child fell sick on March 11, 2016. Her DOB is 20th Aug 2002, New Delhi, India, 5:30 PM or there abouts. I also started having some problem after few days. My DOB is 30th April 1975, Calcutta, India, 9:16 AM. Both our conditions are painful without a direct cure in sight. There is lot of panic and paranoia in our minds right now with high anxiety about how things will turn out to be, so was looking for an astrologer to shed some light as to when this will get over. Please help, an anxious mother. My name is Paromita,and my child’s name is Juhi.

  3. Does anyone have any idea what Capulus and Algol conjunct both Ascendant & Chiron in a Davison relationship chart would mean? Thank you

    • I would be careful! With alcohol/ anger or posessiveniss.. check out the degree of descendant or anything opposite (asteroids)?
      The mc and ic… the spinal cord of your relationsship.
      It can indicate a spiritual spark between you both that can heal you both.
      Takes al the taurus values serious or it can end nasty.
      Its best to have a realistic view of eachother.

  4. I have conjunction of capulus with moon and mars. Moon and mars are in 24.58 degree. What to expect in life Jamie?:(

  5. note: While the Donald is busy playing with fire engines Mitch McConnell the majority leader of the Senate is busy messing with our healthcare so I found his birthday but time unknown: His Mars is conjunct Capulus which is conjunct Saturn and Uranus 72 degrees from Pluto in Leo on Regulas. Mitch is a Pisces and steals power and manipulation quietly and stealthily.
    It’s probably Mitch who is running the government behind the scenes and is one to watch. His birthday Feb. 20, 1942. Would the 72 degrees in this chart plus Mars square Pluto signify drive for power. Also, his Saturn and Uranus is conjunct Algol.

  6. I have natal chiron at 22° taurus 7th, now in progression its 24° shifted to the 6th house…
    Ive been in a turmoil few months, last year with a men who had mars conjunct algol.. like a cat im still licking my wounds..
    The man was very abusive, alcoholic and apparently a drugaddict.
    It was hard sometimes standing my ground but i survived.
    Other family members involved had nessus conjunct my chiron.
    It squares my natal mc leo 22°… north node retrograde in cancer 15° 9th house.. valuable family lessons learned.
    Nn moved to 14° cancer and vertex 17° into 8th house.
    The man has sun cancer 22° (10th) mc 17° cancer moon (9th house) cancer 12°.

  7. Hillary and Trump both have a prominent Capulus?!!! Both holding the swords trying to chop each other heads off!
    Oh my my! Why am I not surprised by this. What a fight, who wins in the end and is left hold the head of Algol?
    I predict.. Trump

  8. Capulus conjunct Chiron conjunct Mercury in the 12th, sextile Venus in Pisces, sextile Moon in Cancer.
    The problems with the spine in the neck area are definitely part of my life – tension in the shoulder since childhood and in times of great adversity the situation worsens and affects the eyesight.

  9. It’s been a long time coming, Jamie, thanks for posting the Algol and Capulus material, Eric Burdon chart and other articles related to that part of the heavens, where the Pars Fortuna resides in the natal chart.

    Zaurak 23Tau20
    Capulus 23Tau39
    Pars Fortuna 24Tau09
    Algol 25Tau38

    I’m reading of the turmoil in the church, Pope Francis pof 23Tau, Donald Trump with his MC at Capulus. The forever marching forward of these two men, their swords raised; the unfortunate suffering of their words and actions, bestowed on so many, and I’m weeping today.

  10. How would you interpret Capulus, Algol, Misam, and Chiron all conjunct the AC in a natal chart? Opposite Uranus!

  11. Hi jamie what do you think about uranus nearby capulus now ? Greez from germany 🙋

  12. A rather poignant post in hindsight, (October 27, under the primary pseudonym) just a few days before the hammer meets the nail, and our lives change forever. Uranus retrogrades August 28, 2023.

    Attributions to mistakes or misuse of power, Venus conjunct Aldebaran in the August 5, 2023 Tertiary 1 chart, but there is Part of Fortune at this degree in the Progressed chart.

    Does this console the suffering? Hardly, but I take full responsibility, however creative AI has become. People want results? the zero point in the Astrologyking artwork doesn’t appear to f’k around. Watch your Age of @Aquarius progressed chart, Venus zero point and Saturn at Ascendant. A ‘return’ of a different sort, my bright idea.

    • Age of Aquarius ? Aquarius ain’t no saint and I beleved that s**t far too long…it is just another ideology of nosy pseudoethical pseudo-illuminated luciferan fascists.. lol if there were no victims…
